Before I forget, if you want to write anything for the next issue of Coagula, March 4 is the deadline.
Went to a ton of galleries today, was sifting through notes and stuff, will write it all up over the course of the next few days. Suffice to say that pizza in Larchmont Village and sushi in Little Tokyo beat out all of the art – although so many galleries were installing for shows, it was hard to tell. If you bend over to look at art, there is a certain “who bows for whom?” play going on. The only exception to “good food / bad art” was the DeKooning drawing show at MOCA. It was so tremendous, I may be forced to confine my review to the print edition.
Got home and saw the new issue of ArtScene had arrived. I have a three page article imploring people not to go to art school on some mad quest to be an art star. But you do what you want. You can accuse me of majoring in hypocrisy, as I will be speaking Monday night at CSLB at two of critic Chris Miles’ classes.
